Webinar Series on Care Coordination for Children with Complex Health Care Needs

Authors:

Date: 2016

Project: LPFCH Care Coordination Project

Keywords: CYSHCN

Sponsored by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health (LPFCH) and the Catalyst Center, this webinar series focuses on coordinating care for children with “social complexity,” i.e., those with chronic or complex medical conditions complicated by psychosocial issues and family problems such as poverty, poor parental health, substance abuse, domestic violence, and homelessness. This webinar is a continuation of the work that began with the LPFCH’s national symposium, “Designing Systems That Work for Children with Complex Health Care Needs” (see the archived webcast and Symposium Proceedings).

The Care Coordination Conundrum and Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

Authors: Bachman, S.S., Comeau, M., Jankovsky, K.

Date: 2015

Project: LPFCH Care Coordination Project

Keywords: CYSHCN

In a 2012 survey, families with children with special health care needs (CSHCN) identified care coordination as their top priority. At its best, care coordination is a covered service—a command center, of sorts—that addresses the interrelated medical, social, developmental, behavioral, educational, and financial needs of children and their families. But there is great confusion over who is responsible for providing care coordination services, who should pay for them, and how to get reimbursed for such services. As a result of this inefficiency, CSHCN and their families experience even greater difficulties. This report, funded by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, discusses why care coordination has been insufficiently financed and reimbursed to date, and what can be done to address these challenges.
